The former chairman of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe is speaking out about his criminal corruption case as he seeks to dismiss all of the charges against him.

Cedric Cromwell is being accused of stealing money from his tribe as part of an arrangement with a gaming developer. He pleaded not guilty to the charges, following his arrest and indictment last November.

"I'm fighting with the federal government now, personally," Cromwell said on Monday on Clubhouse, a new audio-based, social media app that has exploded in popularity in recent weeks.
